Aamir Khan is all set to begin work on his dream project, that is a series based on the mythology, Mahabharata. After the huge debacle of his recently released movie Thugs of Hindostan, it will take a lot from him to win the audience back and make them want to wait for the content he is offering them. There is no doubt that he is known for his perfectionism and masterclass skills and on top of that, he is the perfect choice to lead a series based on the biggest mythology ever.
The shoot for Mahabharata will soon begin and he will be travelling to the USA with his core crew to work on the ideation and writing part of the series which is expected to last around two months. The actor will be involved in a detailed process of the movie. As per current reports, Mahabharata will be a 7 part series and each episode will be directed by the different director. Aamir Khan himself will be portraying the role of Lord Krishna in the series. The remaining cast of the series has not been revealed but it will not be star heavy and the major focus will be laid on the script of the series.
Up till now, we have seen multiple renditions of Mahabharata on our screens from Star Plus’ To Ekta Kapoor’s one but none have been able to stand the close to B.R. Chopra’s magnum opus. To date, we picturise each character from Mahabharata like them and it will be a huge task for Aamir Khan to come close to that epic. Other details regarding the upcoming series haven’t been revealed. Also, the streaming platform where this magnum opus will be aired is yet to finalised.
